You know what. I might be inclined to make a Stardew Valley crossover with a Krieger...

[–]interesseret 241 points242 points  (1 child)

It would certainly change the dungeon crawling up a bit.

[–]Lord_Quintusheretical Tau lover 71 points72 points  (0 children)

it'd be like playing doom on 'dont hurt me' mode

[–]EndPointNear 42 points43 points  (0 children)

It's called Graveyard Keeper


[–]Inductivegrunt9 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Now that would be a great game. Just mod in a Death Korps uniform for the player character and play the game as best of a Krieger you can.

[–]CRtwenty 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Mod all the tools so they're shovels.

Axe? Shovel.

Hoe? Shovel.

Watering can? Definitely a shovel.

Stardew Valley WH40K is a game I didn't know I needed until today.

    i read that, and now i have a brain cell that is tasked with storing that information. i'm sorry little brain cell for what i've forced you to do, if you hate me i totally understand.

    [–]Not_Another_UsernamUltrastan 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    Don't worry, it's not just one brain cell. It's an entire network of brain cells that all fire in a specific pattern.

    I was genuinely expecting the Krieger to willingly take the hit wanting to die only for the grox to be friendly

    [–]CRtwenty 13 points14 points  (0 children)

    The Krieger may be unhappy on such a peaceful planet but suicide is a waste of the Imperium's resources.

        Got links to the first two parts in the Series?

        [–]VisualGeologist6258Slaanesh is kinda based actually 450 points451 points  (5 children)

        I like how the Big Grox is effectively a Khornate grox because it has three 8s on its ear tag, horns in the shape of the World Eater helmet, and an icon of Khorne on its right shoulder.

        [–]ImperatorTempus42 171 points172 points  (0 children)

        Called "Follower of the Red Path"; yep it's Khornate.

        [–]jack_lafouine 135 points136 points  (0 children)

        Huh, didnt notice the khorne icon before

        Can Grox give milk? Because then we found the source for the milk in the Khorneflakes!

        [–]dmr11 3 points4 points  (0 children)

        If the Krieger noticed those things, he might've executed the grox and burned the remains instead of merely beating it into submission.

        [–]CRtwenty 12 points13 points  (0 children)

        You're just mad cause you're from beta legion

        [–]Donut_Police 114 points115 points  (9 children)

        Nearby Inquisitor: what do you mean exactly by... "supernaturally" peaceful?

        [–]Hazzamo 108 points109 points  (7 children)

        Guardsman: as in, it’s so peaceful and the locals are so polite there’s no way it can be anything other than the ruinous powers, inquisitor.

        Inquisitor: what did you say the name of this place was?

        Guardsman: the locals call this place “Canada”, sir.

        [–]VenodranNOT ENOUGH DAKKA 77 points78 points  (3 children)

        Don’t ask them what happened to the previous inhabitants though, or about the ferocity of their guardsmen enlisted by the tithe.

        [–]yunivorJUST AS PLANNED! 31 points32 points  (0 children)

        Also don't go anywhere near the wildlife called "Geese".

        [–]evrestcoleghost 9 points10 points  (0 children)

        Or where those previous inhabitants where reeducated

        [–]Lord_Quintusheretical Tau lover 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        also don't ask about starlight tours

        [–]CanadianDragonGuy 27 points28 points  (0 children)

        Clearly you've never met these Canadians at one of their primary recreational arenas. Theres a reason there is a saying "I went to a fight but then a hockey game broke out"

        [–]alphaomag 12 points13 points  (1 child)

        Sounds a lot like Cadia! We should check for nearby eyes of terror

        [–]Hazzamo 13 points14 points  (0 children)

        Canadian: Eye of terror, that sounds bad, what is it?

        Inquisitor: an entry to hell filled with Ruinous powers

        Canadian: Oh ya, no, for sure, that sounds like Calgary when the geese migrate.

        Inquisitor: What is this “Geese?”

        Canadian: That’s a goose


        Guardsman: how is that the ruinous powe…GET IT OFF!, GET IT OFFF!!!


        Inquisitor: Bh the God-Emperor

        Canadian: You can’t say I didn’t warn him, eh?

        [–]dmr11 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        So peaceful that it takes Khornate influence for anything to act up (see: the Khorne icons and numbers on that aggressive grox).

          Honestly I can see that. Well that, or this is just a part of Tzeentch's plan which has been stolen by Alpharious and turned into a plan that can actually benefit humanity for once.

          [–]TJS184Praise the Man-Emperor 72 points73 points  (12 children)

          I could be wrong, but I thought grox meat was a luxury, I swear I’ve seen regular domestic farm animals referenced before or at of least things that fit the description.

          [–]Spines 108 points109 points  (7 children)

          Nah it is just that normally you cant get meat if you are poor. Grox is the cheapest meat.

          [–]evilgiraffe666 38 points39 points  (6 children)

          Why is it the cheapest? Dangerous animals seem like they'd be harder to farm.

          Caveat: I do not know lore.

          [–]redbaron31Praise the Man-Emperor 65 points66 points  (3 children)

          They usually lobotomise them to keep them docile as I recall

          [–]evilgiraffe666 24 points25 points  (2 children)

          Seems odd that people would be scared of them then, or need to explain why the atmosphere makes them chill. At least until the krieg realises they're not lobotomized.

          [–]ZedTheDead 21 points22 points  (0 children)

          Well a lobotomized grix may not be innately aggressive but it's still a several ton, uncoordinated, very stupid animal covered in spiky bits.

          [–]Square-Pipe7679VULKAN LIFTS! 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          I recommend reading “the bookkeepers skull” for an example of why you don’t want the Grox getting loose xD

          [–]HipoSlime 38 points39 points  (0 children)

          Grox are very hardy creatures and can be raised in all sorts of environments so the Imperium had multiple planets worth of grox being raised for food, hence its availability, at least compared to other meats

          [–]Spines 28 points29 points  (0 children)

          They can litterally eat everything. Grow extremely fast and can live in desetrs, wastes, in low and high temperatures +++.

          [–]OneofTheOldBreed 22 points23 points  (3 children)

          I think that might be something of a "medieval potato" issue where authors slip in terms of the universe setting and insert something inconsistent.

          [–]AnAlpacaIsJudgingYou 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          Ah I get it

          [–]TJS184Praise the Man-Emperor 1 point2 points  (1 child)

          Probably this, that said, setting wise I don’t see why something ubiquitous as a chicken, sheep or goat, etc. wouldn’t have made it to the 41st millennium, dogs & cats have after all.

          [–]OneofTheOldBreed 3 points4 points  (0 children)

          We know pigs have, but that's because apparently, even in the 41st millenia, pig skin makes for the best writing medium.

          But the serious answer would be that grox represents a cheaper or easier livestock to raise displacing beef, chicken, and / or mutton/lamb. Perhaps to such an extent that galactically that they have become exotic. A parallel to this IRL is organ meat, at least in the US. A century ago, things like tongue, tripe, or pigs' ears were pretty common. Now you might find them at a supermarket but will likely have to go a kinda boutique-y niche store to get it.

          [–]Am-Not-a-Goose 27 points28 points  (2 children)

          Aren't grox lobotomized to make them docile?

          [–]OneofTheOldBreed 37 points38 points  (0 children)

          In most circumstances, yes. However, if by happenstance they were already pretty controllable, why bother? And i seem to remember at least one novel where its noted that it was cheaper to keep them in pits than lobotomize them.

          [–]121900ccll 4 points5 points  (0 children)

          yes they tend to eat each other when not lobotomized

          [–]BionicBruvlikes civilians but likes fire more 24 points25 points  (0 children)

          I’m so thankful to Mick for this super wholesome comic series…but I know there’s a daemonblade lurking in the dark waiting to impale me through the back with a terrible, grimdark ending.

          It also has World Eater helmet shaped horns and "follows the red path".

          Horns and follows the red path…. Neat

          [–]turkmenistanForever 2 points3 points  (0 children)

          Fact:Because every part of a grox is delicious and nutritious, they are basically highly territorial and aggressive, so they have to lobotomize them to turn them into herding animal.

          [–]Berettadin 5 points6 points  (0 children)

          It's Old Lore. Probably a reference to a comic book. Or some really obscure episode of Star Trek. The derp is complimentary. Don't forget Ambulls and Sand Clams and the rest. It's in there, too.

          Plus the oddity that for all the essential value of Grox soldiers get fed corpse starch far more often. /shrug
